Changing the teacher’s role: How to educate students to become academic prosumers
The world is changing rapidly and the challenges that today’s students will face in the future are almost unpredictable.Therefore, when teaching at a technical university nowadays, one should take into account that it’s not enough just to teach about final results and ready-to-use products. Instead, the teaching approach should focus on a deep understanding of the development and functionality of the products.
In this Refresh Teaching event two speakers will present how they motivate the students to take responsibility for the subjects they learn. This approach not only changes the way the students learn but also the role of a teacher in a classroom.
